Who is this class for: This course is designed for anyone who is interested in using data to gain insights and make better business decisions. The techniques discussed are applied in all functional areas within business organizations including accounting, finance, human resource management, marketing, operations, and strategic planning. This course is primarily aimed at professionals who have a bachelor’s degree and/or some exposure to the business world. The software tool used in the course is based on Microsoft Excel and therefore is accessible for anyone with some prior exposure to Excel.

However, even undergraduates in non-technical fields or advanced high-school students pursuing internships will be able to follow most concepts and get value from the course.
